Reinventing Space (RIS) Conference 9 – 13 October

Monday afternoon included a space debris session followed in the evening by the Spaceports session. There were about 65 people (up to 200 on the Tuesday) and I thought that the evening went really well, hosted by Adam Baker whom introduced a ‘voting’ controller to conduct an informal poll about spaceports, vertical launchers etc. Prestwick and Llanbedr Spaceports presented their pitch as a taster for the upcoming Spaceport Conference in Feb 2016.

On Wednesday Jonathan Firth, Executive Vice President of Spaceport and Program Development, Virgin Galactic, gave an update on SapceShip2 as well as progress on Launcher One.
